Greetings Fraternity and Chapter members and volunteers,
It was a pleasure to represent Lodge 1267 at the International Conference in Las Vegas. A lot of information was discussed as well as looking into changing some of the General Laws and Rules. I should be able to provide everyone with more information toward the middle of the Month when the dust settles from the decisions. We are still making progress towards getting our financial situation under control, and I learned a great deal at the 2-HOTTS class in Callao in the Month of May. We have installed our new frozen drink machine in the Social Quarters just in time for the hot summer months. We have already run through the Orange-Mango and Pina Colada mixes and currently have Watermelon and Strawberry in the machine. Come in and beat the heat with an Ice Cold refreshment. As many of you know, we are seriously looking into cutting the newsletter to every other Month as a cost savings measure. The price of postage as we all know increases like the cost of gasoline. That being said, the board is getting the calendar together so that we can notify everyone quicker about upcoming events. I trust that everyone enjoyed our celebration with the band “Southern Explosion”. I am sorry that I missed the extravaganza! Be on the lookout for postings about July 4th, upcoming dinners, and all around good fun and fraternalism. Stay cool and we all hope to see you soon.
Fraternally Joe Eller Administrator
